Virginia Regulatory Town Hall

Guidance Document Change: Consistent with the established position of the NASW, the Board considers “conversion therapy” or “sexual orientation change efforts” to be services that have the potential to be a danger to clients, especially minors. Thus, under regulations governing practitioners licensed or registered by the Board, practicing conversion therapy/sexual orientation change efforts with minors could result in a finding of misconduct and disciplinary action against the licensee or registrant.

Ban Conversion Therapy

I cannot believe that I am even writing this. Conversion therapy is a harmful and out-dated practice that has no morals. As a new Virginia resident I have been impressed with a lot of the politics that has evolved, until this. As a mom, a teacher, and a member of this state I wholeheartedly support an immediate ban on conversion therapy.
